Taking both OOXML and UOF standards as examples, we empirically evaluate the interoperability of office document formats from the view of translation practice. With the aim of covering the complete feature set of OOXML and UOF, a novel UOF-Open XML Translator is developed in this study. Thorough experiments demonstrate that our translator implements bidirectional conversion of 80.4% features perfectly and 9.9% features with acceptable discrepancy. Regarding the remaining 9.7% features, more efforts would be taken in future work. View Full-Text
